Lead Dentist

Dr James Wong

James was born in Malaysia and finished high school in Melbourne (two years in Trinity Grammar).

He has called New Zealand home since 1992, and earned a BDS from the University of Otago in 1996. His interests are in restorative dentistry, implants and root canal treatment.

What he loves about his job is being social and building a strong connection with his patients and staff. He feels very motivated when he builds relationships with his patients -- putting smiles on their faces and in turn turning them into friends.

James loves being with his friends and family, traveling, and doing sports.

Fun Fact: Besides English, he speaks Malay and 3 different Chinese languages (Mandarin, Cantonese and Foochow)!

Lead Dentist

Dr Hannah Chan

Hannah was born in Taipei, Taiwan and has been in New Zealand since 1988. She graduated with a BDS from Otago in 1996. Her interests include restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

She finds it most satisfying when she sees her patients achieve their goals, and believes that great communication with them is key to successful outcomes. She makes it her goal to put smiles on her patients faces and to become not just their doctor but their friend too.

When not on her dental chair, Hannah loves delving into architecture and interior design, as well as reading, traveling and spending time with her family.
